As you probably already know, I like Aspect Ratios a lot. In this week’s episode I want to hone in specifically on the 4:3 aspect ratio and talk about what it does for framing, space and more in the context of anime. This week I’m talking about how 4:3 has accumulated more value over time, how it creates a sense of intimacy or confinement and loads more!
Next episode is the start of the first ever GITM Minisode series! I know it isn’t ideal but please look forward to these bitesized discussions about some of my favourite animators / directors in the anime sphere for a few weeks.
